Goldendoodles vs Labradoodles

At some point you probably have been out somewhere and came a across a Doodle dog. However do you think you would be able to decipher the difference between a Golden and a Labradoodle to know which breed of dog it actually is? Well here is the comparison between them. See if you were surprised to learn the difference.

  1. Labradoodle is a Poodle and Labrador mix, a Goldendoodle is a Poodle and Golden Retriever mix.
  2. Personality Differences
    Both Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are very well tempered and make great family dogs. However, there are some key differences that might affect your decision between the two. Generally speaking, Goldendoodles tend to have more “zest for life” than Labradoodles. This is a classic trait of Golden Retrievers in general and are unrelentingly happy and tend to be more enthusiastic about everything — from playing fetch to meeting new people. If you were to put a Goldendoodle and a Labradoodle in a room with a new person, you’d notice right away that a Goldendoodle would not hesitate to run up to a new person and say hello, while a Labradoodle would be more stand-offish. Labradoodles are warm friendly dogs it just takes them a little longer to become more playful then a Goldendoodle. Once they do, be ready for lots of licks and puppy dog kisses. lol!!
  3. Energy Levels
    Both Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are considered high-energy dogs. Both dogs are classified as retrievers, so they both love to run and play fetch. They are also very fond of swimming. As a result, they need regular exercise to avoid behavioral problems that tend to result from bored (and highly intelligent) dogs. In any case, there is not much difference between Labradoodles and Goldendoodles when it comes to energy levels. If you want a dog who will lazily lay around the house all day, these breeds are not right for you.
  4. Temperament
    Both breeds are exceptionally mild mannered and make great family dogs. Between the two, Labradoodles are generally more protective. Some people might see this as a positive aspect, while others may be concerned about their protective nature crossing the line into aggression. However, Labradoodles are definitely not considered an aggressive breed. While both Labradoodles and Goldendoodles would make for poor guard dogs because of their friendly temperament, they do make pretty good watch dogs. You can count on either breed to bark at new comers as they approach the house in a loud and intimidating manner, just don’t expect them to do anything but kiss the person if they come inside.
  5. Physical Differences
    There is not much difference in terms of size between Goldendoodles and Labradoodles, although Labradoodles tend to be slightly larger than Goldendoodles on average. Both have very similar coats, which are typically curly and non-shedding. However, due to the fact that labradors tend to have short and wiry fur, Labradoodle coats are typically not as long and wavy as Goldendoodle coats.
  6. Which One is Right For You? Labradoodle vs. Goldendoodle                            When it comes to choosing between the two, you really can’t go wrong. Their personality differences are subtle and they have far more in common than not. Owners of both breeds are always head-over-heels in love and rarely have buyers remorse thinking about their chosen doodle breed.

Oodles of Doodles The story behind it….

I have always had an artistic side when it came to writing, doodling, photography and scrapbooking. My life is lived through the lens of a camera and brought to life in books with a touch of creativity using stickers, journaling, quotes and embellishments. So when I found myself constantly talking about my Golden Doodle Tucker and incorporating him in my pictures, Facebook posts and scrapbooks, I thought there would be no better way then to combine 2 of my favorite things into a blog. A way that others with similar interests can share cute stories, pictures and lots of creative and fun ideas. So whether you are into being artsy and creative or just have a love of Doodles (Golden Doodles/Labradoodles) I hope you will enjoy my page, like and share it and check out my blog on WordPress which can be found at Lets be creative and love our Doodles!!
